A tiger cub was today found dead in the Talodhi (Balapur) forest range in the district, forest officials said.
The caracass of the three-four-month-old cub, which was examined by a veterenarian doctor was partially eaten, Forest Development Corporation of Maharashtra (FDCM) Regional Manager Mohan Karnat said.
A tigress along with two cubs (including the dead cub) had been spotted near Jankapur under the range a week ago, Karnat said adding the progress of the trio were being monitored since then.
The place from where the body of the cub was recovered is a rough terrain, Karnat said.
The exact cause of the cub and a possible death is yet to be ascertained, Karnat said adding samples had been sent for testing.
